Maine Agility Sprint Festival


The first open Rollerski Cross Country Cross event in the world.

Pineland Farms New Gloucester, Maine October 27 (starting at 9am women/9:30am men for instruction, tour & warm up) or - Course open for instruction and warm up at 9am - Competition begins 10am.

The Maine Event: Agility Sprint Festival builds on the success of our NENSA Rossignol Fall Rollerski Classic from last weekend, where over 170 skiers showed up to race. A nice build up from our start at the Celebrity Duel at the 2018 National U16 camp, held in June in Lake Placid, NY. That camp saw the best under 16 skiers in the country trying their hand at rollers, jumps, spins, and slalom turns all while competing for the fastest time alongside four time Olympian Andy Newell and Ludvig Sognen Jensen, the fastest skier in the world. As NENSA moves forward with this exciting new discipline of skiing, we will be offering the opportunity to compete on this course to all comers on October 27. This exciting dryland version of Cross Country Cross builds on aspects of both sprinting and agility.

Races will be broken up by gender and age, with the qualification round starts at 10am, then followed by the head to head rounds starting at 11:30am, with Junior Women and Men starting out first, followed by Open Women and Men. Skiers will compete on a matched fleet of Swenor skate rollerskis. This uniform equipment will help to even the playing field and create a competition based solely on athletic performance.

NENSA has grown our programming to offer year round opportunities for a traditionally winter sport. The NENSA Bag Balm Rollerski Race Series launched in August with the App Gap Challenge, followed by Lake Placid Doubleday and Climb to the Castle in September. The series continue d with the NENSA Rossignol Fall Classic on October 13th and culminating at the Trapp Invitational on November 3rd.

NENSA’s rollerski programming is made possible with the support of our series named sponsor Bag Balm , as well as our associate sponsors Swix who is graciously supplying the podium prizes. L.L. Bean , Nokian Tyres , along with the EnjoyWinter brands of Swenor, Bliz, & Anti-Freeze, and our presenting media sponsor Skitrax Magazine.
